FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - McKinney, Texas January 3, 2013 - Southwest Ice Cream Specialties is voluntarily recalling ShurFine Brand "Creamery Select (Premium Ice Cream) Dulce de Leche" Ice Cream (1.75 quarts, 1.66L) because it may contain praline pecan ice cream, which contains wheat, soy and pecans. The product is packed with a ShurFine Praline Pecan lid, but bears the Dulce de Leche product labeling on the carton.
